A very important part of Home Staging is the de-cluttering.
De-cluttering is high on the list of important things to do, to
get your house ready to put on the market.

All extra “stuff” should be removed. Clutter eats space and
space is a selling feature. De-cluttering makes the rooms,
their size and volume of space feel bigger. When the house
is de-cluttered potential buyers can focus on the selling features
of the house and not on the “stuff” or the possible lack of closet
and cupboard storage.

All closets, cupboards and drawers that are attached to the house
need to be de-cluttered as the potential buyers could look inside.
Leave only the items necessary, pack and put the rest in storage.
The easiest way to describe the desired look is a store shelf for
cupboards. Items of similar size and shape together, stacked and
organized neatly.

Refrain from buying in bulk (eg. toilet paper, etc., Costco size) while
your house is on the market. This extra bulk takes up precious space
which could give the buyer the impression you house is short on
storage space.

As a Home Stager, my job is to look at the Sellers house through
the eyes of the most discriminating home buyer and give the Seller
my honest and professional recommendations on all of the improvements
that can be done in the house to position the house to be more
competitive and appeal to the greatest range of potential buyers in
the target market.

The final decisions as to what suggestions are or are not implemented
are entirely up to the Seller.

I had a Home Staging Consultation recently, a listing that had expired.
After the Consultation, the very motivated Seller implemented the majority
of the suggestions and the house sold firm in 3 days.

The more motivated the Seller, the more suggestions they are apt to
implement. The more suggestions they implement, the more apt
the house is going to sell faster and for a higher price.

Home Staging can help, but in the end, it’s up to the Seller.
